IMT Bucharest – National Institute for R&D in Microtechnologies
Mircea Dragoman was born in Bucharest, Romania, in 1955. He graduated from the Electronic Faculty, Politehnica University of Bucharest, Romania, in 1980. He received the Ph.D. degree in electronics in 1991. He has been a Senior Researcher I with the National Research Institute in Microtechnologies since 1996. Since 2008, he has been teaching a course termed Advanced Technological Processes that is related to nanotechnologies and advanced materials at the Politehnica University of Bucharest. He has realized the first carbon nanotube and grapheme devices and circuits for high-frequency applications enriching the novel area of carbon-based electronics. He has followed post-doctoral studies at Duisburg University, Germany. He was an Invited Professor with the CNR, Istituto di Elettronica dello Stato Solido, Rome, Italy, in 1996, the University of Saint-Étienne, France, in 1997, the University of Mannheim from 1998 to 1999 and from 2001 to 2002, the University of Frankfurt in 2003, and the University of Darmstadt in 2004. From 2005 to 2006 and from 2008 to 2010, he was nominated as the Directeur de Recherche at CNRS LAAS Toulouse. He has published over 250 scientific papers in the following areas: nanoelectronics, microwaves, MEMS, and optoelectronics. He has co-authored Advanced Optoelectronic Devices (with D. Dragoman and M. Dragoman, Springer, 1999), Optical Characterization of Solids (with D. Dragoman and M. Dragoman, Springer, 2002), Quantum Classical Analogies (with D. Dragoman and M. Dragoman, Springer, 2004), Nanoelectronics Principles and Devices (with M. Dragoman and D. Dragoman, Boston, USA: Artech House, 2006, first edition, 2006, second edition, 2008), Bionanoelectronics (with D. Dragoman and M. Dragoman, Springer, 2012), Bionanolectronics (with D. Dragoman and M. Dragoman, Sheng Wu Na Mi Dian Zi Xu, Science Press, Chinese Edition, 2015), and 2D Nanoelectronics: Physics and Devices of Atomically Thin Materials (Springer, 2017). From 1992 to 1994, he was a recipient of the Humbold Fellowship Award. He received the Gheorghe Cartianu Award of the Romanian Academy in 1999.
